How To Use Mineral Rich Foods As Your Medicine

How To Use Mineral Rich Foods As Your Medicine

Using foods as medicine is always my first priority when preventing imbalances, treating health challenges and promoting optimal health & vitality. Nature has provided us with a way of delivering our body’s nutritional requirements through the blessing of whole foods.

Minerals from the foods you eat help to build strong bones & teeth, healthy hair, glowing skin, easy-to grow nails, normal nerve function along with governing your hormone health and metabolism.

An important step in supporting your hormone health is incorporating a varied array of nutrients into your daily diet. Refer to my list of minerals found in health giving (gluten free) foods, below. Aim to opt for organic where possible.

Your Guide to Pesticides in Food (Dirty Dozen vs Clean 15)

Your Guide to Pesticides in Food (Dirty Dozen vs Clean 15)

You are probably more than aware of the recent Organic produce movement by now.

Conventional farming practises often use toxic chemicals, which can enter our foods through means of fertilisers, sewage sludge, pesticides and herbicides.

As much as we are told otherwise, these toxins are absorbed into the farmed foods and therefore enter the body (of you and your loved ones) when they are consumed.

Washing your produce can help to decrease some of these toxins, but majority of pesticides are absorbed into the food and cannot be removed before consuming.

Generally organic produce is more expensive, so if you are not in a position to afford all organic at this stage, this ‘Shoppers Guide To Pesticides in Food’ list will help.

It has been developed by the ‘Environmental Working Group’ in the US, in order to make people aware of those fruits and vegetables which are the highest contaminated by...

How To Be Healthy While Travelling

How To Be Healthy While Travelling

After months of counting down, tonight I am officially jetting off to France for a holiday! I’ll be taking a much needed break, to rest my hard working adrenal glands (stress glands) and take some time out to relax, be present, soak up the sunshine and the incredible scenery of Paris and the French countryside. The best part is I lucky enough to share this incredible experience with my Mum

The general response I receive after mentioning my upcoming trip to the France, is in regards to the abundance of bread and cheese and how I will personally struggle to keep up my healthy routine.

Sure, I am well that cheese and bread make up a traditional part of the French diet, but I am determined to learn how their food quality and manufacturing processes differ to the Australian standard. I want to show that healthy travel in France is possible.

Planning is key to a healthy holiday, so I have jotted down some of...
